We purchased an O. Wolfi octopus from our LFS, within two weeks of purchase she climbed into a hole in some lace rock, and began hatching eggs. This morning we awoke to find her out of that hole, and baby octopus' swimming all around the tank. We contacted our local zoo, and public aquarium, and nobody really gave solid answers on what to do. We've been feeding rotifers and zooplankton, we've stopped filtration, and added an airstone for water movement, but my question is, are we supposed to separate from the mother? (She's been ignoring them) and do we have to separate them from each other? How soon does all this have to occur? and what is realistic survival rate? Currently we have atleast 20 - 30 live specimens, all swimming at the top in the rotifer field. What do we do now? Any and all answers will help. We really did not expect this, nor do we know how she got fertilized. Thank you in advance.
